Batch 206 Old Log Cabin Bourbon
While Batch 206 Distillery's expression of Old Log Cabin Bourbon is approx. 19 to 26 months old, the history of this storied brand of whiskey goes as far back as the year 1840.
"The Old Log Cabin brand is kind of like the Zelig of the Whiskey world, it's been popping up in the strangest places throughout American history" says Batch 206 Distillery owner, Jeff Steichen, with a chuckle. The initial incarnation occurred in 1840, when an enterprising whiskey maker produced a whiskey he called "Old Cabin" which he sold in a custom cabin shaped bottle. Old Cabin was first seen being passed out in large volumes at many a campaign whistle stop for a gentleman named William Henry Harrison, who later became the 9th President of the United States. Oh, yeah, that enterprising whiskey makers name, E.G. Booz.
The whiskey ended up being made by many distilleries over time and the brand name morphed into "Old Log Cabin". To this day the Cabin shaped bottles and dozens of knock-offs command some of the highest prices in collectible Americana glass.
